Here is a sentence which I think proves the current approach of the sanction-happy DWP is deeply flawed and should be abandoned forthwith, according to Peter Styles.
In my opinion 17 words which are deeply damning:
I have got one of the 67 jobs I applied for in the fortnight I was sanctioned.
So apparently I was sanctioned for having an insufficiently wide job search, despite applying for two entry level positions at a supermarket because I was ordered to by jackboot DWP bullies. Their intransigence and lack of humanity beggars belief.
I am still waiting to hear from the independent adjudicator looking into the reasons for the sanction, and have heard nothing from my official complaint to the DWP demanding two Brighton Jobcentre staff are sacked for discrimination.
Read the rest – including Peter’s kind words for everyone else at the “coalface” because of Coalition policy, and his unkind words for Iain Duncan Smith – on his blog’s site.
